BETHESDA, Md (Dec. 4, 2006) -- Barbara A. Horwitz, distinguished professor of physiology and vice provost at the University of California, Davis, has been selected the 2007 recipient of the Bodil M.

The Women in Physiology Committee of the American Physiological Society (APS) chose Horwitz based on her mentoring excellence and outstanding contributions to physiological research.

The award is named in honor of Bodil M. Schmidt-Nielsen, the first woman president of the Society and a distinguished physiologist who has made significant contributions in her field. The award honors an APS member who has made outstanding contributions to physiological research and demonstrated dedication and commitment to excellence in training of young physiologists by:

  • mentoring, guiding and nurturing their professional and personal development
  • developing novel education methods and materials
  • promoting scientific outreach efforts
  • attracting individuals to the field of physiology
  • fostering an environment exceptionally conducive to education in physiology

Horwitz received her doctorate from Emory University in Atlanta and did her postdoctoral training at the University of California, Los Angeles and the University of California, Davis. She was appointed assistant research physiologist at Davis and rose through the academic ranks to become professor of physiology in 1978. She was named distinguished professor in 2003.

From 1991-1998 Horwitz was chair of UC, Davis Department of Animal Physiology, later named the Section of Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior. In 2001, she became the vice provost for academic personnel, a position she still holds. Horwitz has received a National Institutes of Health Method to Extend Research in Time (MERIT) Award and was named a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) i
